SCOPE/OLYMPIA is an international exchange program that brings together Canadian and American Scouts and Scouters for an extended weekend of fun program and fellowship. This experience began in 1967 when the Canadians visited the Baden-Powell District. It has continued with the Canadian Scouts coming to the US and Scouts from the Cradle of Liberty Council going to Canada for the past 56 years.
This year, the Canadians are coming!
